Plextor LLC, today announced it would not exit the optical drive market despite earlier reports
of its parent company, Shinano Kenshi. Although Shinano Kenshi Co., Ltd., announced on January 19, 2007 plans to perform a corporate reorganization, Plextor optical drives will continue to be available in North and South American markets.
This announcement by Shinano Kenshi will have no material affect on the operations of Plextor LLC, as we already completed a corporate reorganization in North and South America last year. Our business will continue as usual,
said Toru Nakazawa, President of Plextor LLC, USA.
